Hi everyone happy Thursday. Today I wanted to share with you a dividend increase I received at the end of April. On April 26th Johnson & Johnson announced that they are raising their dividend by 7.1%.

What is Johnson & Johnson?

Dividend

As mentioned above the dividend is rising 7.1%, the per quarter pay out will now be $0.90 per share compared to $0.84. The new dividend will begin on June 12th this year.

Income

I bought my first shares of Johnson & Johnson this year, and I currently own 16 shares. With the rise of the dividend my income will increase $3.84 USD or $4.94 CDN.

This is the first of hopefully many dividend increases I will receive from this excellent company.

 

Congrats to all of the other shareholders who received this raise.
